Who is volunteering in America? How much do they volunteer, and with what organizations?
How can nonprofits best engage Americans in their causes?
The new report from the Corporation for National and Community Service, "Volunteering and Civic Life in America," has some answers. Drawn from the most recent U.S. Census Bureau surveys of tens of thousands of households, the report and its accompanying website show how cities, states, age groups and other demographics rank and interact when it comes to volunteering and community involvement.

For April 2013 Nonprofit Insights webinar, VolunteerMatch President Greg Baldwin had a special conversation with Dr. Christopher Spera, Director of Research & Evaluation at the Corporation for National and Community Service. They discussed the history of this research report, the trends it reveals, and the many ways nonprofits can make best use of the information contained within.
